Students at Norwood School have been successfully and safely learning on-campus throughout the vast majority of the 2020-2021 school year.  Extensive planning and careful execution of health and safety protocols has made this possible.  These protocols are the basis for Summer at Norwood's health and safety planning. 

Every member of the Summer at Norwood community, whether camper, parent, or employee, is expected to adhere to the protocols outlined in the Summer at Norwood Community Agreement.

We will continue to continue to monitor developments related to the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).  Building a safe environment for our camp community is our highest priority.
